The Malzoné’s wildlife Reserve was acquired in 1977 by the FDC 41. It is an exceptional shelter for migratory birds located in the heart of Sologne, a natural region where many small lakes are concentrated. Because of its quietness, the wildlife Reserve is dedicated to the conservation and study of Nature. In winter, it is not rare to count more than a thousand ducks of various species. The Malzoné Reserve is a 77 ha site, with 32 ha of water and two observatories allowing you to be at the heart of Nature. The ‘La Tour’ trail is open all year, while the ‘Souchet’ trail is open from April 1 until September 30, in order to preserve birds’ tranquility from the hunting season.
